Welcome to our photo galleries showcasing the best photography entries on our competition capturing the dramatic scenery, the stunning coast and the quality of the natural environment in the Western Lake District.

Thank you to everyone who sent in entries, we have had a fantastic response! In fact there have been so many excellent photographs that we have now created three galleries to showcase lakes, landscapes and coast.

And on this page we showcase a selection of the very best entries of...

WESTERN LAKE DISTRICT LAKES

The Western Lake District boasts England’s deepest lake - Wastwater. Sitting in the magnificent Wasdale Valley, Wastwater is arguably the most dramatic of all the lakes, while Bassenthwaite Lake is truly impressive and can hold claim to being the only true ‘lake’ in the Lake District! Along with Derwentwater, Loweswater, Ennerdale Water, Crummock Water and Longlands Lake, the Other Side of the Lakes offers a tremendous and truly enviable selection of picturesque places to discover, enjoy and photograph.

OUR PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION

The Photography Competition 2013 was supported by the Trout Hotel, Cockermouth, and the Kirkstile Inn, Loweswater.
